On Oct 3, 1995 over 95 million people watched live on TV as the verdicts were read in the OJ Simpson Murder Trial. The country waited anxiously to find out what would happen on the streets of Los Angeles. If OJ was found guilty would there be a race riot. I was outside the LA county courthouse with microphone and tape recorder covering the reaction for my radio station back in Toronto. This episode of 1995 recreates that day when OJ Simpson was found not guilty.
In this bonus episode two interviews I did in 1995 about the Paul Bernardo Murder trial.
When Paul Bernardo was found guilty of first degree murder in the deaths of Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French the case was far from over. The Crown wanted Bernardo to be declared a Dangerous Offender so he could be sent to jail indefinitely. And there were several more emotional hurdles for the families. Including victim impact statements at Bernardo's Dangerous Offender hearing, the demolition of the house where the girls were killed and the destruction of the horrific video-taped evidence from the case. In this final episode of Season One host Kathy Kenzora also brings you up to date on the status of Bernardo today. All music in this episode written and performed by Lee Rosevere.
